Wokingham, UK — The ACT2016SMX-4 and ACT2205SMX-4 sub-miniature surface-mount crystals, available from ACAL Technology and manufactured by Advanced Crystal Technology, support the growing demand for stable and accurate RF clocking in portable or handheld wireless and other space-constrained applications.
The ultra-compact 4-pad seam-sealed, ceramic packages provide stability down to ±10 ppm with low ageing of ±1 ppm at 25 degrees Centigrade in the first year. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) can also be improved by grounding the metal lids through the two spare pads.
Supporting frequencies from 24.00 MHz to 60.00 MHz, the ACT2016SMX-4 is offered in a space-saving 2.0- x 1.60- x 0.45-mm package. The ACT2205SMX-4 has a 2.0- x 2.5- x 0.55-mm package and supports frequencies from 16.00 MHz to 48.00 MHz.
Specialist applications assistance and design expertise coupled with in house UK testing facilities assists to support tight design cycles.
